6 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 cups chopped almonds*
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
3/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil**
*Instead of 2 cups almonds, I used 1 cup almonds and 1/2 cup each of sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.
**You could also use coconut oil. I'm going to the next time I make this.
Makes 13 cups of granola.
Preheat oven to 250°. Lightly spray 2 cookie sheets or cover with parchment paper. Mix ingredients. Transfer to baking sheets. Bake one hour, stirring every 20 minutes. Cool slightly, then transfer to a large bowl. Raisins (or dried cranberries!) can be added at this point.
